How cool is this?!! We've got a new NBA star straight out of Boise!

Chandler Hutchison has been drafted to the Chicago Bulls! He's the first in the history of BSU basketball to be drafted in the first round of the NBA draft.

According to KTVB he was selected 22nd overall by the Bulls.

During his time at BSU he scored 1,478 points.

Hutchison's draft into the NBA is not a shocker; he initially declared for the NBA draft last year but decided to finish up his senior year and his degree instead.

Of course, Hutchison makes Boise very proud. In the history of the Mountain West BSU is only the second university to have a player selected in the first round of the NBA and NFL drafts in the same year.

We've got linebacker Leighton Vander Esch playing for the Dallas Cowboys. He was drafted back in April.

We can't wait to watch you play Chandler! I think I just became a Chicago Bulls fan!!
